Kristýna is our Czech butterfly. She studied 4 years of medicine before she decided, 3 years ago, to quit and move to Iceland to search for her passion in life. In her free time, she likes to run, bike, ski, and climb. The first time she stepped on a glacier after moving to Iceland she knew this is what she wanted to do. She is very motivated, shines when she is on the glacier and she is a great storyteller.

If Krisýna was a fruit, the would be a Banana. She actually took a fruit quiz and got a very valid description: You are a softie—but in a good way. People think you are gentle and warm. And your presence makes them feel safe. Just like a banana in its peel, you are also a timid person. 🍌
